To determine the MPGe, use this equation: But how to determine kWh used? *C/D Estimated. 41 kWh/100mi Combined MPG on Gas Only: 33 MPG combined. The electric power steering is appropriately light and has zero slop, on-center and elsewhere. The ELR's all-electric range, which was rated at 37 miles for the 2014 model year, is now estimated at 39 miles, according to GM. The base of its windshield sits 6.3 inches forward of the Volt’s for that dramatic front rake, and not a single exterior piece is shared. Caddy says the numbers will be slightly lower than the Volt’s 98 MPGe in combined electric-only driving and 35 mpg city/40 mpg highway. city/highway. From the February 2014 Issue of Car and Driver. Using a retuned version of the Chevrolet Volt's Voltec EREV drivetrain, the ELR's lithium-ion battery pack delivers an all-electric range of 37–39 miles (60–63 km) and a top speed of 106 mph (171 km/h). The ELR’s entry price is nearly double that of the Volt, the Caddy’s mechanical starting point, and it’s roughly 2.5 times that of the average new car.

It uses GM’s HiPer strut in front for better geometry, a Watt’s linkage for better lateral control at the rear, and variable dampers and power steering from ZF. Unfortunately, EPA figures weren’t available at press time.
Yes, you read that correctly. This website is administered by Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the U.S. DOE and the U.S. EPA. Zero to 60 mph: 9.0/8.1 sec And it better look like a million bucks, because everybody’s going around calling it the $75,995 Chevy Volt. Gene, 02/18/2016. Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.84 g, FUEL ECONOMY:
And as it turns out, this $80,000 Volt business is a bit of an overstatement anyway. After draining the majority of its battery, the ELR automatically switches to ER mode and lights the engine. Driven slowly, as the hybrid gods intend, the ELR is as smooth as two fingers of Lagavulin. We averaged 37 MPGe. The second motor/generator, in conjunction with the planetary gears, can provide a ratio effect allowing the ELR to reach its 107-mph top speed in EV mode. Top speed (governor limited): 107 mph EPA city/highway: 32/38* mpg
From the February 2014 Issue of Car and Driver. The only clue that the engine has kicked over is a small change in the gauge cluster. Braking, 70-0 mph: 173 ft What the ELR gives up in outright performance, it gets back in efficiency. Answers to frequently asked questions about octane.
